The graphics on the IBM are far superior to those on any other home version, as the hamburgers look good enough to eat. (No wonder the chef is so chubby!) My only complaint is how demeaning the instruction booklet is. It claims that if you can come close to the highest possible score— 99,999,950— you are a certified "Burger Maniac." Considering that it takes a good half hour to score 100,000 points, it would only take a little over 20 days of straight playing to reach 99,000,000 points! I have only about one hour per day to devote to video games, so I could make it in about one and one half years. Unfortunately you can't save a game!!

McDonalds upsets my stomach; BurgerTime upsets my mind. I humbly suggest that this game would appeal only to tastes that prefer the sizzle to the steak and the commercial to the real thing.
